Photo Opportunity creates both a toy theater, and a shadow theater screen based rendition of action drawn from images of the Iraq prison abuse scandal.
The actions shows the prison guard rhythmically sodomizing the hooded prisoner with a broom while a guard dog watches on. Viewers interact with the work by pressing the camera shutter button, at which point the guard briefly interrupts their work to give a thumbs up and both dog and guard give a winning smile, before the awful task is resumed.
This piece is a sister work to "No Photo Opportunity".
